Who knew? Barack Obama's got some pipes on him.

The President's small serenade to Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" at a fundraiser at New York City's legendary Apollo Theater last Thursday surprised us all, and caught the attention of one person in particular which led him to make the President an offer (we're hoping) he can't refuse.

And that would be Idol honcho Nigel Lythgoe, who invited the Prez via Twitter to appear on American Idol:

"@BarackObama we loved your vocal performance so much we'd love to invite you on to #AmericanIdol this Season for a duet with Al Green."

Why, that's a fantastic idea, Nigel! We'll just answer for Obama and say yes, he will definitely do it. OK, so we can't decide for him, but we're pretty sure people would groove to it...

Barack—whaddya say?

And what do you say, people? Are you ready for the Crooner-in-Chief on Idol? Let us know in the comments.
